International course

Cell Biology and Cancer

2018

The course will run from Wednesday afternoon to Wednesday evening of the following week. Each day there will be a different topic and 4-5 lectures from local researches (one 1h long lecture) and foreigner speakers (2 lectures). In the evening, during dinner the students will present their research in the format of 10 minutes chalk talk using a white board and only one Powerpoint slide. There will be also 3 sessions with short talks (10 minutes talk plus 5 minutes questions) from selected abstracts (opened to all researchers in Paris area). To motivate students to interact with speakers, we will assign each speaker to 2 students. Students will be expected to read recent papers from the speaker’s lab, to introduce the speaker, chair questions after his/her talk, and to serve as a guide/host for the speaker during the course.

Courses will be taught in English. While the whole course will be open to everyone, the students’ presentations will be restricted to selected students.

Objectives

The general objective of 1st Cell biology and Cancer course is to cover different topics in cell biology of cancer including cell division, migration and membrane trafficking at different levels: molecular, cellular and in the living organism. In addition, there will 2 dedicated sessions for Physics and Cancer; and tools for cancer cell biology.

Personal work

On Saturday we will organize a workshop on carrier development when plan to invite 3-4 speakers that are currently working at non-academic settings. In addition, one evening will be dedicated to “life and science” session when the international speakers will join students over dinner to talk about their life in science, their achievements and their failures, good and bad about moments in their carrier.
Each participant will give a 10 minute oral presentation of his/her work (maximum 3 power point slides) and he/she will have 5 minutes to answer questions
